Rivian Working on Sustainable Fast Chargers


Rivian is planning to install 3,500 fast-chargers and 10,000 Level 2 chargers in the U.S. and Canada.

That includes plans to install two Level 2 chargers at each of Colorado’s 42 state parks. Construction on those is planned for July.

Rivian is also planning to place chargers at malls, restaurants, campsites, and other places.

The AC chargers should provide about 25 miles per hour. Meanwhile, the fast chargers are projected to give drivers up to 140 miles of charge in 20 minutes.

While the fast chargers will only be installed at 600 locations, they will be powered by renewable energy, as Rivian is going to work with local companies to use wind and solar energy to provide the juice. Rivian plans to have all 13,500 chargers of both types fully installed by the end of 2023.

It’s a near certainty that Rivian will direct owners to chargers via the navigation system.

Although only Rivian owners will be able to access this network, Rivian drivers will still be able to use other networks.

Charge for me, not for thee, eh?
